I found an old image on my hardrive, its three years old and made me laugh, mainly because it was one of my first attempts at making a self portrait. A bad one at that. At the time  I didn't know any facial anatomy, colour theory, or generally have the experience I have now. I still have room for improvement, so if you spot anything let me know.

Anyway, Here's the WIP for comparison from start to end.


Here's a reference:

 It looks good right now. Gj! I can really tell the adams apple is big now. it even bulges out.

   Updated this last night. For comparison the older itteration has a D in it in the WIP animation. Now I'll be off to london for a  few LADS night outs :)

It’s funny you say that, I almost agree fully with you. However it's such a small area and I just can't seem to find the right cluster of pixels to make it look exactly like mine. At the moment it shares a close likeness, but I;m not happy with that. That doesn't mean I'll settle for how it is now, I'll be working on that until I get it right. If you have an edit I'd also appreciate that, it’s hard sometimes to fix things when you've looked at it for so long, you know, 

Anyway, I've just come back from a 10 hour shift today, I'll have 6 hours sleep and then I've got a 15 hour shift. On Sunday I'm off to London for 3 days, so I'll work on this either late tomorrow, or all day Saturday. However long it takes to finish it.

I really appreciate the feedback, thanks :)

 Well, I have a very prominant adam apple, and I was trying to give it an acute angle of shadow , but you're right, I'll tone it down a bit and choose something that doesn't contrast as much.

Very nice. I think you should work on the eyes, though. They're not really your eyes.

Oh wow. This is hillarious, nice AND sick at the same time. Great job. Also, whats that one dark pixel doing on the throat? It's kindof out of place.
